FBIA & NBIA Offer Scholarship to Attend
28th International Conference on Business Incubation

The Florida Business Incubation Association (FBIA) and the National Business Incubation Association have again partnered to sponsor an incubation manager or economic developer from the Sunshine State to attend the 28th International Conference on Business Incubation. The NBIA/FBIA Joint Scholarship will cover the cost of the early-bird registration fee ($795 NBIA member; $995 nonmember) to the NBIA’s 2014 conference, held on May 18-21 in New Orleans.

“The NBIA plays an important role in providing education, training, and networking opportunities for incubator associates that are invaluable to new and seasoned professionals,” said Dr. Tom O’Neal, FBIA president. “The Joint Scholarship program is an excellent opportunity to enhance the knowledge and understanding of the incubation industry in Florida.”

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be a current FBIA member and should be a first-time NBIA conference attendee or an individual who might not otherwise be able to attend. Applicants do not need to be a current NBIA member to be eligible.

Applications must be submitted to Michael.Weiss@ucf.edu before March 13, 2014. The recipient of the scholarship will be announced Thursday afternoon, March 20th at the FBIA’s 2014 Spring Conference.

The scholarship recipient must register by the early-bird deadline, April 4th, to receive the 100% scholarship. Those who register after the early-bird deadline will be responsible for paying the difference in fees between the early-bird rate and the applicable published rate for that time.

The scholarship recipient will also be responsible for all travel, lodging and incidental expenses.
